American Things I Miss

American Things I Miss

While I love living here in Germany, there are a few things back in America that I miss. These are places or things that I have yet to find a sufficient substitute here.

Packing Tips for Chronic Overpackers

Packing Tips for Chronic Overpackers

Packing for intercontinental journeys (and even intracontinental journeys) can be difficult for anyone, but especially for chronic overpackers like myself. A friend of mine is travelling to Germany in the fall, and she keeps asking for advice. She is quite happy to be learning from my mistakes, and I realized that others could, too. My overpacking tendencies (which I mentioned here) have caused me many problems over my travels. I have learned to streamline my process by trial and error,…
